Yea the moral of this story is "Don't use auto-rest." Even if you had it your way, you're gonna have wacky looking lineups when you do that.
Actually, I think the real moral of the story is, rest your players occasionally, even when they're at 100% so they don't ever get to 99% or whatever threshold you deem to low to play. No matter what world you are in, there are good team, there are bad team, there are lefties starting, there are righties. Rest your players when you deem you still have a good matchup with them sitting on the bench (but available for pinch hitting) rather than allowing the sim to rest them based upon a 99% rest setting. Its not too terribly tough to figure out how many at bats a guy can get in a year w/o getting worn down, rest accordingly.
